After months of reviewing close to 300 beauty products and wellness facilities, and tallying, here are the best skincare products of this year, and lest we forget, your top pick! And so without further ado, here are the Beauty & Wellness Awards winners.

As technology continues to advance and discoveries are made each day, we do our part in dipping our toe in the proverbial pool of beauty to explore the latest and greatest. Embracing the new is part of our job as investigative beauty aficionados, and as we dig through the recent debuts, we’ve found some newbies that have found a permanent spot on our top shelf that we highly recommend checking out.
